Freedom-to-Operate Opinions

Launching a new product or service is a sensitive time for any company. This time, along with enthusiasm for the new venture, can bring vulnerability to patent infringement claims.

AEON Law provides comprehensive and nuanced freedom-to-operate opinions to help clients understand the patent landscape in the fields of their innovations and plan accordingly. In other words, we help our clients go forward on launch day with confidence that they know the risks and have taken appropriate action to mitigate them.

Freedom of operation is especially important for entrepreneurs seeking investors. AEON Law attorneys don’t just work with entrepreneurs; we are entrepreneurs. We know how important a smooth road to funding or acquisition is and give clients the information and advice they need.

Advice on freedom to operate often goes hand-in-hand with patentability opinions that search prior art and educate clients on whether an invention meets the novelty requirement and other hurdles to patent registration. We believe that educating clients as early as possible on the risks leads directly to long-term business success. Tools like these – along with opinions on non-infringement and validity – are part of the comprehensive business strategy we provide.

Let's work together.
